lckdscl's site

What is this?

This is my personal site. Here, I write things of all kinds. It's primarily to document what I learn in the big world of tech and privacy, and other things such as music, films, hardware. My opinions are my own.

It is generated by Jekyll and hosted on Github (WIP to host it libre). There is no JS, it's in pure HTML & CSS. The Jekyll template is available here. This website uses the gruvbox theme.

Not so coincidentally, my notes and startpage also live under this domain.

Who am I?

Online handle: lckdscl
Real name: You can figure that out
Legal name: Never
Age: 19

Q: How do you pronounce "lckdscl"?
A: Lackadaisical (so much so that I dropped the vowels).


None. I'm currently a Physics and Philosophy joint honours undergraduate.


I'm a prograymmer in the day, and pro-gaymer at night, alongside various other geeky stuff. I touch grass on average once per week. I listen to a lot of music and occasionally watch arthouse films, I dabble a bit in anime, but not too much.

Supporter of open sauce and muh freedom. Richard Stallman is my daddy, /g/ is my homepage, everything just werks on my machine, Vim is better than Emacs, tiling wms are superior, and I use arch btw. Those are all sarcastic, but they have a touch of truth in them.

Any illustrations I use here are drawn by me.

Real location?

Somewhere in Europe.

Good albums

Knowledge dump

A chaotic collection saved links which serves me better than a zettlekasten. These are too specific to go on my browser startpage, but they get lost if they go into my bookmarks. Therefore, I will index them like a gigachad.
